Ocean acidification: global warming’s evil twin

Recent studies have demonstrated that both the temperature increases and the increased concentrations of CO2 in the oceans are causing significant changes in marine ecosystems. Many marine organisms are already affected by these anthropogenic stresses, including impacts due to coral bleaching and ocean acidification.

Dr. Richard A. Feely, a Senior Scientist at the NOAA Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory in Seattle, will discuss the present and future implications of CO2 levels on the health of our ocean ecosystems and related ocean-based economies.
